"Remarkably effective and thought-provoking writing. Tudball is a masterful storyteller. Genuinely one of the nicest productions I have seen."
“The audience was completely rapt...Callum, aged 12, said it was ‘the best thing he had seen this year,’ and Ewan, aged 9 said, ‘It has taught me two things...it’s hard to be an adult, and it’s hard to be a child.’”
"Entertaining, thought-provoking, moving, and uplifting...Quite simply everyone should see it."
